    Here is my 10a BEC soldered up. I still need to go back and clean it up. I did wrap and heat shrink the wires on the battery input side. Funny we worked on them within a day of each other. LOL

    Sure is digger. I read in a thread of yours earlier yesterday about you installing yours. I figured it would be perfect timing for me to ask about it. I was hoping you would reply. Looks good man. I like dealing with the wiring. Have you noticed a difference in your savox now that u have it installed?

    Man it works 100% better IMO. I'm geting the full 6v and pure transit time & torque that the savox offers. I put a Jr extension coming out of the Rx to plug/ unplug the BEC. I did notice to program the BEC you have to make sure the switch on the ESC is in the OFF postion.

    Man I hate look'n at that rats nest I have there though. LOL

    I know, messy wires drive me crazy. I can live with them while I am testing new product, but after I know it works then it's time to clean them up. I did not know the BEC was programmable. Shows how much I paying attention lol. Ok so we're does the castle link connect to program the BEC. Set BEC to 6v? Thanks

    The default setting is @ 5.1v. So you will notice a boost once you go the full 6v. Don't feed anymore than that to your Rx. To program it you will need the Castle Link.

    Roger, been having a castle link. Where do I connect castle link. When I program my esc, I disconnect esc from receiver, then connect castle lint to receiver wire and of course the USB on computer. So we're would castle link connect to set the BEC?

    I believe the castle link plugs into the bec, but am not 100% sure. They sure don't give much info in the bec manual to help with programming.

    Yep, i believe that would be to hold a chassis shroud to keep the dirt and debris out while running the truck.

    Made a few purchases while at work. Bought another TQI transmitter. Thinking I should have upgraded to something better. Oh we'll, it's to late.
    I bought some extra protrac front a-arms just in case.
    I got this massive losi spring collection. They are for the 8ight buggy & truggy.i should be home in about two days. Can't wait!

    My new p2de bag from racers edge. My wife is awesome. When she told me that she picked up my bday present from hobby town, I couldn't wait to get home. Just rolled up the desk cover and starting to think about the build again. I feel rusty though.

    Working on the savox steering servo wiring. Didnt like how long the wire was or how it entered the receiver box. So i came up with this. Shorten the wire and enter the box from the bottom. Man a steady hand and some patience go along way. It came out just how i wanted.

    Thanks Chris. I noticed one thing, i can do a good job if i am focused. It was difficult to regain focus after being away. Keep up the good work Chris. It dont hurt nutin to have a shelf queen. Something you can look at and admire.

    Ok, i finally figured out the castle link "Y" cable. I drilled a hole in the top of receiver box and ran wire through the hole.
    I also finished up the rest of the wiring. Very happy to be done with this.i also programmed the esc. Had a problem though, but found out i forgot to link the transmitter and receiver. All is well except for a slight buzzing from the servo. Any suggestions?

    VERY Nice, great work.... I love it bro... Excellent job.


    Asfor the buzzing from the servo, its normal homie. its the "digital" noise. What it actually means, I dont know but I think it has something to do with it maintaining a center. Dont quote me on that, but u can quote me that its normal.. No worrys there. Ul also notice it will change, with ur trim.. So unhook ur saver, center servo and trim, reconnect and ul notice a "chnage" not that it will exactly go away, but ul notice a change... Either way, its normal man.

    thank you for the complement Greg. I bought it from the bay. It's called black braided nymax sleeve (expandable). From brussellex.

    Thanks! Your wiring is an inspiration. Also, do you use a heat gun for your shrink tubing?

    thanks Loot. I use the same servo on my p4de and it buzzes a little bit to. Not as bad and goes away when I bump the steering. I just bugged out when I heard more than I was used to. Thanks again. I will sleep better knowing all is well. I have no earthly idea what to do about a body?

    i use a propane solder iron/multi purpose gizmo. Got it at Home Depot. I remove the solder iron attachment and just a pretty adjustable blue flame comes out. That's what I use. It's called a bernzomatic.

    I ran it in the house last nite on wood floor. One thing I noticed was that it took off without spinning the tires. It kind of scared me because it hit the entertainment center. What a difference from my lite stock p2de. It was so cool, it just shot off like a dragster. Well sort of. Liking what I see so far. Awaiting its maiden street voyage!

    The two red wires (esc & bec) stick out like a sore thumb lol. Might cheat and use a black paint pen.

    Does look very cool, but you wont be able to turn the wheels without catching the fender! Lol i like the look of the tires bulging out of the wheel wells, but unfortunately the steering clearance needed for these trucks requires either tires in or tires out. Maybe the fenders could be trimmed for just enough clearance. Thedreadedend trimmed the fenders right off one of his short course bodies and it looked pretty sweet. i like that look though.

    For sure Baldy, major trimming would be required. I ain't scared! Lol Man I am just playing with different ideas. I tried on a erevo and slash vw body also. I realize trimming is inevitable. Did a lot of trimming on gravedigger body. Baldy, do you have any body suggestions, maybe links to places I might not have looked? Anybody?

    Hey Dirty, glad to see you're back on the build. The latest picture you posted really shows off the great work you've put in.

    I saw your funny car comment, I saw the slash body, and I noticed a missing front body mount. Picking a body for an extended pede is tricky. Consider some monster jam body mounts. They look great with the protrac plastics and provide the most adjustability, especially up front.

    I hear you on the body delimma. If you look at some of the old tmaxx 2.5 nitro bodies, you might find a shell you like. Good length for the chassis, but not as wide as the slash lids. I've seen Parma makes a Nissan Titan body and a Toyota Tundra lid. They might be discontinued but still in circulation. A bit too long for the 1 inch extension, but it's a couple options for you with 12 to 13 inch wheelbases, around 17 long and 7 wide. Looking real good man

    Thanks Oaks. The front body mount is going to be the harder one., due to the big nut on the losi shock mount. It makes the stock p2de body post difficult without heavily modifying it. I will look into the MJ mounts. Thanks for the tip!
